Spread the word about #DogSafety this Child Safety Week (5-11 June 2023)
Defra, the Child Accident Prevention Trust, the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities and leading animal welfare organisations have put together a range of resources with practical #DogSafety tips that families can use in their everyday lives.
We’re encouraging local authorities and safeguarding professionals to share these materials throughout Child Safety Week (5-11 June) to help spread the #DogSafety message in our communities. Resources include:
- Child Accident Prevention Trust fact sheets: “Your dog and your new baby” and “Safety around dogs”
- Dog Safety Code social media infographics – shareable infographics for social media with key dog safety messages such as never leaving dogs and children alone, and any dog can bite.
- Dog Safety Code printable posters – including Welsh translated versions.
- Dogs and children: living safely together | Dogs Trust
For further information, please download our dog safety resources and visit the Canine and Feline Sector Group website page on dog safety.
